Air France, insurers suing Toronto Airport, NavCanada over 2005 crash
4 June 2008

Air France and its insurers are suing the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, and NavCanada for some $180 million, charging they all cut corners that contributed to the crash of its Airbus A340 in 2005.
The airline says the design of Toronto International Airport’s runway 24L failed to ensure there was an “adequate margin of safety for aircraft in the event of an overrun event.” The runway ends at a steep ravine.
The claim filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that a.o. states “GTAA failed to provide a safe environment for the conduct of civil air operations.”
